Convert outlook from imap to pop

Convert outlook from imap to pop

I have been having problems using Outlook 2013 and now 2016 using IMAP. This may be due to the size of the mailbox. Outlook startup, send/receive and synchronization run slowly. When contacts are created, they cannot be displayed on searched for. When the contact is re-created it, Outlook finds the original and merges the two. The contact still  cannot be displayed or searched for. And archiving does seem to work with IMAP.


So I would like to convert Outlook from IMAP to POP. Hopefully this will eliminate the problems and allow. I tried exporting OUTLOOK and then importing it to a POP Profile. This created the the right folders but the only email imported was Synchonization Erroes.


Any advice would be welcome. Thanks!
